Amanda’s Wows in Amsale Gown

Our daughter, Amanda DePriest, looked absolutely stunning in this Amsale Bijou wedding gown. I can still remember the sound that came from the guests at her courtyard wedding August 30, 2014. It was simply a chorus of sighs from all. The gown is part of the Amsale Blue Label, which is a prestige collection of couture gowns. These gowns are the highest in quality and style.

Fun and Girly Wedding Dress

A Wedding Dress Story by Keri Sanborn Sheehan I found my dress at David’s Bridal at the very beginning of my wedding planning. My mother-in-law and I stopped in before going to a bridal show to get some ideas, and I tried on some dresses just to get her opinion on what looked good on me. The moment I stepped into this wedding dress, I knew it was something special. Although I never intended to get a wedding dress that day, after I put it on I couldn’t stop looking at myself in the mirror. The beautiful ruching on the top created a...

The Wedding Dress Reflects the Proposal

A Wedding Dress Story by Caitlin Nieburg My husband proposed to me on a chilly morning while vacationing in London. We were standing on the wall of the Tower of London with no one around and just as the sun started to peek out behind the clouds over the Tower Bridge and the Thames, I had the surprise of my life.

In choosing a wedding dress, I dreamt of...

Bride’s Wedding Dress was Lost by Seamstress

A Wedding Dress Story by Lindsay G This dress has quite the story. Once upon a time, I was engaged to a different man and half-way into wedding planning, he decided he didn’t want to marry me. I had already bought a dress, which I loved, so eight years later while preparing to marry the real man of my dreams, we talked about whether or not I should wear this dress from the wedding that never was. My husband Jimmy is not superstitious or believe in “bad vibes” and is pretty frugal, so he told me if I still liked it, I should...
